Ex President Obama meeting with China's new leader any critical summit in California it all starts tonight -- securities be hot topic these days.
Now the US and China have agreed to hold regular meetings about cyber hacking and of course seems to be victim only victim we haven't done anything wrong.
So -- -- -- actually out.
America's all the -- journal editorial board here I mean I loved that.
Come on now yeah -- You gotta love that -- we also have to love the administration's response mean what what they're basically proposing -- arms control.
For Chinese hackers you know we we promise not to do this as you promised not to do it and you know let's hold regular meetings and talk about it -- -- and certain race nothing in in China's history your behavior that suggests that that's gonna work so why I'm because it's laughable that we're holding.
Monthly meetings are you know it's I mean you can't tell monthly meetings it works you know nothing gets -- -- -- look -- look I think it's good that we're talking about hacking it's a major problem -- US industry.
And -- and let the US military for US government concerns so at least it's out in the open it's public we're talking about it.
-- -- security did a big report a couple months ago got a lot of press you know it's on people's minds that's a great.
The problem is that China has realized that under this administration.
We are a week actor in Asia Pacific and they're taking advantage it's not just in hacking.
It's in picking fights with our allies -- and friends across that region.
And so I would hope that the president would have a very tough conversation.
Wish each and paying this weekend -- -- everybody out some fortunately your point is a good one -- that fact that we're seen as -- Bothers a lot of Americans you make a great point -- that to the Chinese hacking is actually really profitable.
Well look if it's worked for them I think I think they looked -- are in the -- first invasion of Iraq some of that.
Activity in the ninety's they were they were getting more prosperous they were starting to build their military and they realized.
That we could invade Iraq so quickly that they had developed some sort of power.
Right to counter us -- I didn't have a conventional force so they said we're gonna do something that is a symmetrical and for them not -- it also has commercial uses for them.
And look it it again it's it's out in the open but I just to -- in the president's proposal.
This kind of arms control agreement not something it's really gonna fly at the same time -- that I mean this is at the heart of our economic relationship with this country right so how do we fix it.
Because you know the slap on the wrist that starting tonight is not gonna make a difference well the the ultimate fixes for China to become a democracy.
And in in this administration hasn't talked about that they've been impacts some -- somewhat determine is that -- said.
You know China isn't gonna change its behavior on to better shin -- and you know it's a peaceful rise if we just pretend that everything's okay eventually.
The middle class is gonna get wealthy enough they're gonna rise up things -- -- People that marry date very well may be true right but that shouldn't preclude us from talking about in explaining.
To the Chinese people what country we we hope to see but -- -- point earlier about the way they view the president as long as he's in office can anything possibly get them.
Well I think what they're gonna do is push the envelope as far as they can.
Whether it's stealing intellectual property from US businesses.
Or whether it's breaking into a multitude of government systems that they've already broken into I mean they have they have compromised some of our most advanced technology.
You know part of the problem too is when you get guys like Jon Huntsman coming out and saying how the president is doing is -- -- he has no support here at home in yellow Huntsman -- also has a business interest clearly Internet in China -- -- Huntsman -- also very big company.
Yeah that that is a problem I think.
Look -- you you compare this administration to a George W.
Bush used to do which would be sit in front of who and when the previous Chinese leaders in say to them.
We wanna have open trade with you it benefits both of our country's.
Eventually want to see democracy -- the talk to you frankly.
But don't mess with us right because bush would rather be feared than loved this this president it's exactly the other way -- -- about -- by got the thing is now at the end of today aren't we hacking too I mean really.
How do you have of course we are but were hacking.
With the government that is responsive to the people that the problem with China is that.
Many of these hackers are creations that the government is getting we we don't know if there a professional team I mean.
You have arms control with the Soviet Union because it was professional forced them professional relationship there it's not the same -- -- on it today so it's.
You know this is an evolving situation but again at least we're talking about and if we haven't reached the right solution.
-- Q so you're talking about it thank goodness for you -- -- editorial board thank you cents making.
